My Dire Needs

We all have needs and wants. As children, we beg and cry in front of our parents, elderly relatives, older brothers and sisters with our requests and demands. We wouldn’t give up until we get all we want. Then we walk away with our victory smile and continue our daily activities.

These go on for many years. Then we grow up, work and accumulate wealth and riches. But in turn, many of us forget about our family, near relatives and friends in the time of prosperity, not wanting to share what we have with anyone.

In the time of our dire needs, we pour our heart out. All of a sudden, we have so much to share and explain, and so much needs and requests to bring forward. Our loved ones and friends listen carefully without interrupting, pity with us, and assist us in all our needs. But many of us just walk away in our time of prosperity, not wanting to be a part of them.

The same is true with God. In desperation, we always come to the Almighty God with sincere heart and prayer. All of a sudden, we have so much to pour out, so much to say. But in the time of prosperity, we live carelessly and we forget totally about Him.

We want things our way; we desire to see things work to our advantage.

Some of us use every means possible and imaginable.

Some of us would not forgo pride and ego; they don’t beg and cry; they don’t resort to illegal, immoral and unethical activities. They would rather die than jeopardize their integrity and code of conduct.

The funny thing about life is that we have a lot of needs and we will never be satisfied.

We always have rooms for more and extra!

We have accumulated so many, but we never seem to have enough.

Sometimes I wonder why the Almighty God never gives us everything we ask.

Maybe they will not do good to our body and soul; maybe they will ruin our testimony as His people. I don’t know.

But God did said, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."

Maybe I need not have that many needs after all.

After all, what have I lacked these many years?

The Bible has said, “Godliness with contentment is great gain.”

And I always console myself with the little that I have.

But I am still very confused and unsatisfied.

It isn’t easy to only have the little that we have. Isn’t it?

It’s time to commit and submit to the will of God.

Only Him will know my dire needs.
